A video which shows a gravely injured man lying on the floor is being shared on various social media platforms with a false communal claim – that a Hindu youth was murdered in broad daylight by Muslims in the “name of secularism.”
We, however, found that it’s a case of family dispute and both the victim and the accused belong to the same community. The video is from 5 June, when Mohammad Imran Khan was murdered by his relatives Mohammad Mehtab Khan, Mohammad Taleb Khan, Mohammad Arbaz Khan, Mohammad Amir and Mohammad Ghouse Khan.
The video, which is being massively shared on Twitter and Facebook, is being shared along with a claim which identifies the victim as a ‘Hindu youth’.
The claim reads: “आंध्र प्रदेश में मुस्लिम युवकों ने हिन्दू- मुस्लिम भाईचारे की मिसाल कायम करते हुए एक हिन्दू युवक को दिनदहाड़े चाकू से गोद कर मार डाला”
[Translation: In an example of Hindu-Muslim unity, Muslim men in Andhra Pradesh murdered a Hindu youth by stabbing him to death with a knife in broad daylight.]
The same video is also being shared with a separate claim, which states that the incident took place in Guwahati.
